Dorothy Dalgliesh School and the PSBSPB is honored and excited to welcome inspirational speaker, Chris Koch!

Mr. Koch will be presenting in the DDS gym on:

  • Thursday, September 21
    • 9:00-10:00 am for grades 4-6
    • 10:45-11:15 am for grades K-3

While Mr. Koch has presented worldwide, and even been on the Oprah Winfrey Show, his roots are humble. Mr. Koch was born in Lethbridge and raised on a farm in Nanton.

While born with no arms or legs, his family refused to treat him with any pity or sympathy – they treated his disability by making the best of it. “After all,” Chris says, “I still have a good head on my shoulders.”

His message is based on his philosophy of “If I Can…” He speaks to not letting obstacles or limitations stand in his way, and how important it is to challenge yourself. Simply put, he says, “If I can do the things I have done so far in my life, what is stopping anyone else from doing the same?”

A HUGE thank you to the Public Schools Betterment Society of Picture Butte for sponsoring a large part of Mr. Koch’s costs.

Anyone order pizza?

Grade 4"P" are working on a cool way to share what books they've read. Instead of doing a traditional book report, Ms. Murray and the 4"P"'s are doing Pizza Report! Check out the cool photos below. First, the kids chose a favorite book to read. Then, they recreated the book cover on the front of the pizza box, and inside, the pizza tells about each component of the book, including plot, characters, setting, conflict/s and resolution. What a fun idea to share knowledge! Ding Dong! I have to go - my pizza's here!
